Are you upset with the number of images, the quality of the images, or both?

@tatil:  Gotcha gotcha, I’m sorry that you were unhappy with them! I don’t think it would be unreasonable to bring up your concerns with your photographer. I’m not sure what is standard practice or what you had in your contract about the number if images you were supposed to receive, but if you were unhappy with the quality of the pictures, I’m sure you photographer would be open to doing whatever they can to rectify the situation.

Best of luck!

Thats a reasonable amount of photos for 1.5 hour session. Thats about what I would give. (not the duplicates part) You should worry about the quality of photos not how many.

 11-18 is a realistic number of photos you want to use/like.

Completely normal and reasonable amount for a two hour session.  You don’t take as many photos in a portrait session as you do with a wedding.  It’s a slower more methodical pace.  We guarantee 40 edited images from a 2 hour session.  I honestly don’t think you have a legitimate reason for the photographter to have to offer to recitify anything.  If anything this comes down to them not managing your expectations/you guys not asking enough questions beforehand as to how many images are to be delivered.  If it was a matter of quality I’d answer a little differently.  Also you are letting your friends influence how you feel about the photographer – have you personally seen the images?

@tatil:  If YOU are not satisfied with the photos and don’t think discussing your concerns with the photographer is worth the time and effort than maybe you should consider breaking the contract and hiring someone else.  I feel like though from what you are saying that you are being influenced by family members, and words from third parties instead of the actual people involved.  Only you know this, but if you don’t like the photos go with someone else.  From the way you’ve told the story I don’t think the photogapher in question is guilty of anything other than not setting your expectations on the number of images.

I’d discuss your concerns with the photographer before doing anything rash. If you saw a bunch of his blog posts and liked his work, you might just have to put some trust in him for the wedding. Maybe your FMIL’s friend doesn’t like the particular style of this photographer, who knows. I know my grandma wasn’t thrilled with my engagement pics because apparently there weren’t enough of us posed, looking at the camera.

Also I’ve realized how awesome my photographer is — we got our proofs back yesterday and got 210 photos, with about 110 of those being separate photos. I liked about 60, so we’re pretty fortunate I guess.

Personally, I would book someone else for your wedding. If you are this disappouinted with your e-pics, I would be worried all day during the wedding about the wedding pics. As for the e-pics, just ask them if they have any additional images they would edit for you to see. Mention you were expecting more variety.

I totally understand where you are coming from in respect to the direction they gave, or lack thereof. I love the pic I have of my and my gtandfather walking down the aisle, but it absolutely infuriatesd me that one side of my hair was down and the other had a cur sticking straight out. like NOONE could have told me that before I walked down the aisle?!?!
